November 16, 2019 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm –

Cabaret is a powerful, dance-driven musical set in 1931 Berlin in the shadow of the Nazi rise to power. Focusing on the nightlife at the sexy, seedy Kit Kat Klub, the play revolves around American writer Cliff Bradshaw and his relationship with English cabaret performer Sally Bowles. The club’s master of ceremonies delivers ribald songs that explore the dark, intoxicating, and turbulent life of Berlin’s citizens and expatriates under an emerging Third Reich. Cabaret originally opened in 1966 and ran for 1,165 performances, winning the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for best musical and eight Tony awards.
